You tell me what you think, I think it’s a Ganoderma Annulare.

I have uploaded a photo showing multiple others, all cross sections seem to have an upper white section.

Hello, Good to see you posted here.

The white part is very interesting, I am not seeing any reference to it in the descriptions. They all say the context is uniform, usually a dark brown.

Not enough people include cross sections in their observations for Ganoderma, but it is one very important feature. Thank you!

I still think based on the overall morphology that G.brownii is a good guess. Perhaps the white band appears in younger specimens but gradually dissapears, Can you post cross sections of the others as well?

The pore surface on the bottoms can be drawn on easily.
